The Museum at Campbell River is launching a new season of puppet shows.

Let Captain Vancouver, Fred Nunns, and other quirky characters from Campbell River’s past give their spin on Campbell River’s most famous moments and stories.

Performances will be held in the Museum’s theatre every Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. between July 3 and August 21.

The cost is $2 per person, and children ages two and younger are free.

Shows are 20 minutes long, and are followed by a craft.

Watch for the puppets by the Maritime Heritage Center on Ocean’s Day,  June 7, and at Aboriginal Day on Thursday, June 2.

Funding for this project has been made possible in part through a contribution from the Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations program, Department of Canadian Heritage.

The Canadian Museums Association administers the museum component of the YCW program on behalf of the Department of Canadian Heritage. The Museum would also like to acknowledge funding assistance from Service Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs program.
